We were staying in Adare house for two nights in April 2013. The room was very large, so that three beds had sufficient space. Heating was OK and necessary as it was snowy 0°C outside. Bathroom was a bit old fashion - the typical Commonwealth style - but clean and sufficient for us. WLAN in the room worked fine.
The house was not too busy, around 3 parties. So it was very quiet.
Breakfast was the typical Irish breakfast with sausages and black pudding. Very tasty. In the breakfast room you could also get a tea or coffee during the day.
If you stay longer, you might miss a more cosy living room for the evening - for us it was no issue however.
Patrick was very kind and helpful, don't hesitate to ask him for sightseeing tips.
The house is 30min to walk from the centre or 5min from the next bus stop. You can park your car on the Adare property (3-4 cars), outside you would need to pay during day time.
For dinner there is a restaurant around the corner (ask Patrick, just 5min walk), which looked OK, but we have not tried it. Instead of we visited the pub beside the restaurant. A typical sports bar but with a lot of space and a good Irish stew.
Allo in all we were satisfied with our choice of Adare house. Price for the 2 nights was quite good for Dublin. We would come again, hopefully at a more warmer time.
